Every stereotype is in this movie. But you gotta love it. It is crazy enough to be an ok movie. Especially when the mom hardly learns a lesson and orders another gigolo after everything had happened. And the grim reaper on the "The End" title was hilarious!

Subject: That's no bull!
What drives youth mad? We all know it's jitterbugging, baton twirling while tap dancing and strip poker. Naturally booze helps some. What does it all lead to? White slavery, of course.

You won't mind the absurd screenplay and awful acting because in spite of itself this nutty, low-budget exploitation flick is highly entertaining. The whacky "bull" fight mentioned by other reviewers alone is worth the price of admission. So file this trip with "Reefer Madness," "Cocaine Fiends" and "Marihuana." It deserves being there. (All of which are available here at IA.)

Complete print with fair video and good audio. Early on there are a few inconsequential missing frames.

Subject: Gee karen
You almost had me going till the "actors" and "actresses" opened their mouths and then it was "How to be a crappy actor 101" It took till nearly the end till you find out what the plot really is, but wild youth? Gee gang..they kissed and necked and one actually got drunk and passed out! How utterly outrageous! I probably set some kind of modern day record for that in the 70s then if this was outrageous..in one night.
It takes 80% of the flick to them getting around to saying Helen is a ho, but in reality she's been sold into bondage.
But never fear.. HERE I AM TO SAVE THE DAY! The original bad guy in the flick becomes the all American kid.. He becomes the All American kid from New York City and doesn't even have to go get good and drunk the night before to look and feel his best.
But mother, the poor slut never learns a damned thing. By now she's probably 110 and still calling up escort services trying to convince them she's 27.
\Funny movie though and writing this was almost as fun as the movie was to watch. The dance scenes were by far the most impressive part of the entire film and I must admit, the dancers were indeed impressive. Pssst.. I hate to be a spoiler, but the bulls were really pigs. lol

Subject: so much better than I thought it would be
It was racy, and raunchy and saucy and a tiny bit vulgar at times. Funny, and quick-witted. Full of one line zingers, and wild youth - smoking, drinking, dancing the jitterbug, necking, strip-poker, sneaking in/out/around, escort services, personal ads, brothels... and redemption - for some of the characters, but not all.

There was quite a bit of great dancing and YOU HAVE TO SEE THE BULL FIGHT SCENE in the restaurant - it was outrageous, a surprise and a delight!

Based on a true story and surprisingly entertaining.

I highly recommend this one.
